    I laughed at the idea. I rode one and couldn't quit smiling. I bought one and am still smiling. I've owned at least 50 motorcycles over the years, but I don't believe I've ever enjoyed one as much as I do this Zero FXS electric. A big bonus is, it is Made in U.S.A. I don't do long rides, so the ~35 miles per battery charge isn't a problem. The loudest sound is the wind and the small amount of sound the bike makes sounds like something out of Star Wars. It weighs less than 250 pounds and will do 0-60 in under 4 seconds. I just wish my 72 year old reflexes were half as good as this bike.

    Interesting. Did you ride any of the bigger models? What made you choose this model?

    The lack of heat means these should tolerable to ride around in the summer in OK.

    It is the only one I have ridden other than e-scooters. I have been looking at them for a couple of years and I wanted this one because it is very light weight.

    So what is it equivalent to a 100 or 125 with an 85 mph top end?

    That's governed speed (it can be raised to 110 per the video). You can loosely convert the power if we knew the specs on the motor (I didn't see that in the video).

    The acceleration looks pretty impressive.
